Chase Ultimate Rewards (UR) is the rewards points program that you earn with Chase-branded credit cards. The Ultimate Rewards points offer the best value in return when you transfer them to loyalty programs that partner with Chase. Your UR points are worth so much more when redeeming them this way. The way it works is you transfer your Chase UR points to a frequent flyer airline for miles at a 1:1 ratio, and you then can use those miles to redeem a flight that the cash price costs more than 1 cent per mile.

As mentioned above, you need to have Chase-branded credit cards that earn the Chase Ultimate Rewards (UR) points and can directly transfer those points to Chase partners.

    How To Transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards Points To Partners?

    It is important to know that transferring Chase Ultimate Rewards (UR) points to partners is a one-way street. You cannot transfer airline miles or hotel points back to Chase once the transfer is finalized.

    It is possible to perform Chase UR points to partners transfer online or on the phone. For online:
    • Sign in to your Chase account. 
    • On the account summer page, scroll down all the way to the bottom until you see the Ultimate Rewards section on the right-hand side. Click Redeem rewards
    • Chase will ask you which UR card you want to use for redemption. 
    • Select the UR card that can transfer to an airline or a hotel partner as mentioned in the "Which Chase Credit Card Earns Ultimate Rewards Points?" section. 
    • Click on where it says Earn / Use on the top section and select Transfer to Travel Partners. (See screenshot below).
    • Select the loyalty program that you want to transfer. If it is your first time transferring UR points to a specific loyalty program, Chase will prompt you to put in your loyalty program's information. 
    • Follow the web interface to indicate how many points you want to transfer. Simply follow the prompts to finalize the transfer.

    Should You Transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards Points To Airline & Hotel Partners?

    It is important to keep in mind that you cannot transfer loyalty program points back to Chase once the transfer is completed. 

    While transferring Chase Ultimate Rewards (UR) points to loyalty programs provides the best points value in return, transferring UR points to hotel points (with the exception of Hyatt) is not usually better than transferring to airline miles. Airline miles result in the best return value of points.

    The rule of thumb is to transfer only if you know you are going to use those miles. Use these as a guideline to help to make a decision:
    • Search and confirm the award availability of the flight that you want. 
    • Understand how that mileage program works such as how to book, mileage expiration policy, award cancellation/change policy in case you have to cancel. 
    • If you cancel, will you be able to use those miles later on? 

    Generally speaking, the speculative transfer can have a negative impact in a way that you are stuck with a particular airline's frequent flyer miles and are not able to use those miles. Airlines can devalue their award chart and so can hotels, and most programs have a policy in place that those unused points can be expired.

    For what is worth, here are my favorite Chase transfer airline partners: Air Canada Aeroplan, British Airways Executive Club, Air France KLM Flying Blue, Iberia Plus, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer, Southwest Rapids Rewards, United MileagePlus, and Virgin Atlantic Flying Club.

    Chase Ultimate Rewards Points Current & Past Transfer Bonus History

    Chase is very stingy when it comes to offering transfer bonuses compared to other credit card issuers. In fact, there was only one transfer bonus that happened in 2019 that they offered a 30% bonus when you transferred UR points to British Airways Execute Club. However, it looks like Chase is offering more transfer bonus offers from time to time now.
